city of night

©2022 Michael Raven

time to throw away
the guns, sent skittering
down poorly lit avenues
sparks dancing orange
in forever nights, against
the backdrop sodium
flickered jaundice. weary
salad days wilted of
mendacity & illusive
recollective perjury fall
slipstream to the clutter
gutter of the past

unable to muster energy
to fill the metered rage
our protagonist shuffles
out into eternal drizzle
& pervasive grey
